Creative Code explores how technology meets art

The Warren Centre’s Creative Code: Where technology meets art event was a vivid, brilliant glimpse of how the world is changing. Creativity and sensory innovation, combined with information and computing technology, are reshaping entertainment, leisure and how we interact.

The event explored how art and technology are merging, and how creative pursuits are underpinned by computer-generated design, coding and technology. It also looked at the blurring of the disciplines of STEM and arts to create STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths). This is an important trend, and it’s one where Australia punches above its weight.

The event took place at Sydney’s Customs House on 7 June 2016. Gail Silman, Principal Project Officer for Training Services NSW, was the moderator.

The panellists were:

  • Chris Bennett, VP and General Manager, Dolby Labs Australia
  • Wayne Lewis, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Rising Sun Pictures
  • Dr Martin Tomitsch, Head of Design Lab, University of Sydney

The event provoked lively debate on Twitter. Next, read our article showing the highlights or browse the #TWCinnovation hashtag.

Creative Code is part of The Warren Centre’s Innovation Panels 2016 series.

The event was kindly sponsored by the University of Sydney.
